Duplo 150 Digital Booklet System

Duplo 150 Digital Booklet System

The 150 Digital Booklet System is Duplo’s entry-level bookletmaking solution, integrating the DSF-2200 Sheet Feeder with the DBM-150S Bookletmaker. A cost-efficient solution for short-run demands, the 150 Digital Booklet System accepts output from multiple sources and converts them into professionally-finished booklets.

Easy Job Programming
The 150 Digital Booklet System can be operated using the standard control panel, where up to 16 jobs can be saved in memory, or the optional DSF-2200 PC Controller Software.

Using DSF-2200’s PC Controller software, the 150 Digital Booklet System can easily be managed and controlled by a single operator via a PC. This intuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI) facilitates the programming and saving of jobs. Simply by entering or selecting the paper sizes, the PC Controller automatically calculates the stitch, fold, and trim positions. User-friendly interface elements such as the drop down list, check boxes, buttons, and sliders make it extremely easy for an operator to select or change settings and to make fine adjustments if needed. The PC Controller can save an unlimited number of jobs that can be instantly recalled to change from one job to another within 60 seconds without any tools required.

Superior Feeding System
Confidently feed documents with precision and accuracy. Feeding up to 200 sheets per minute, the DSF-2200 is the perfect device for feeding pre-collated digital and offset printed documents. The DSF-2200 utilizes Duplo’s patented fan technology to provide a constant and steady supply of air and suction. Together with its 8-belt suction feed system, front and side air separation and Air Management System, this compact but powerful feeder delivers exceptional feeding for a wide range of paper stocks and weights up to 300 gsm.

Each bin of the DSF-2200 is equipped with an ultrasonic sensor, a must have feature for feeding digitally printed documents or output with heavy ink coverage. Using sound waves to detect air gaps between two sheets, ultrasonic sensors are not affected by variations in ink, toner, color or paper weight and therefore, eliminate false feed errors caused by these variables.

To optimize efficiency, the upper bin provides a loading capacity of 2.56” and the lower bin provides a loading capacity of 7.87”. Either bin can be used to feed covers, content and sets with self covers. The Alternate mode allows the loading of one bin while the other is feeding.

Integrity and Security
Process documents containing variable sheet counts using the built-in End Mark Reader or optional barcode reader. Utilize 1D or 2D barcodes to allow the optional barcode reader to check the set ID, page sequence and total sheet count of each set to ensure that sensitive and personalized information is processed with complete integrity and accuracy.

Precision Bookletmaking for Short-Run Demands
Equipped with the Isaberg Rapid stapler and staple cartridge, the DBM-150S Bookletmaker produces a high quality, flat staple every time. Each cartridge holds 5,000 staples and wear parts are replaced each time the cartridge is changed out, providing a high level of reliability. The DBM-150S produces corner and side-stapled applications as well as saddle-stapled and folded booklets up to 1,720 booklets per hour. In addition, booklets can be face trimmed by adding the optional DBM-150T Trimmer.
